The faculty and staff of the Department of Architecture work together to create a lively and supportive environment for our students. We have a dedicated core of permanent faculty, who are active in research, creative practice and community engagement while being intensely committed to excellence in teaching. This group of educators and professionals comes from a wide variety of backgrounds related to the discipline of architecture, providing students with expertise in the history and theory of architecture, materials and fabrication, and sustainable technologies and design. We also have an accomplished group of affiliate, adjunct and emeritus faculty, as well as part-time lecturers, who enhance our teaching offerings by giving students access to expertise that exists within our college and in the larger professional community. All of these efforts are sustained by a dedicated staff, who provide support and guidance to students and faculty alike.
